When Patrick Brady texted me a few weeks ago and told me that he was now training at Balance Studios, I knew he was serious about getting better in all areas of his game. Balance has a roster deep in every area but especially the heavier weight classes. Brady walks around weighting a little over the 265 lb heavyweight limit and needed some more size to prepare him properly. This move will test him in ways he hasn’t been tested before since he now has the likes of Anton Berzin, Andre Petrosky, Joe Pyfer and Ricardo Migliarese to basically kick his ass in the room. He couldn’t be happier.
Please check out our interview with Patrick Brady in the link above. Brady has an upbeat personality and enjoys life despite the chaotic daily responsibilities. He works full time, is a dad to two sons and is heavily involved with their youth football teams. Then he finds time to roll and spar and game-plan and everything else necessary to be successful in the cage. Pat is thankful for his girlfriend Kiersten who goes above and beyond to help him with everything. Brady will try to win the Art of War Amateur Heavyweight this Saturday September 28th at AOW 13 which is being hosted in South Philly’s 2300 Arena. When I asked Pat how he saw his opponent Militant Mike Erb, he had this to say….
“Mike has a lot more experience than me. I’ve watched some of his fights and he likes to stand and bang. I like to stand and bang. I think this fight will be all stand up and someone is getting knocked out and it’s not going to be me. If it does go to the ground and Jiu-Jitsu comes into play, I’m fine with that because these guys have me ready. This is the best I’ve felt. The level of the guys I’m training with is crazy.”
The big boys are always a fun fight because it can end with one punch. I will be paying close attention from cage-side as the Big Homie Justin Haskell and I call the action along with current Bellator fighter Zu Anyanwu sitting in with us. MyMMANews will have live results and a full recap of the entire stacked card brought to you by Mike Bickings and his co-matchmaker Jillian Peterson.

The story of the fighter is what Bob loves about the sport. From the lowest level, to the highest, he only cares about the two warriors who do battle once the cage doors close. Everything else is secondary. Without their blood, sweat, and tears, he would not be here enjoying every minute.
